Lawn Shop Moss Control – A water soluble powder containing 95% Ferrous Sulphate – Sulphate of Iron for greening up turf and moss control.
This is the product found in many domestic fertiliser ‘three in one’ formulations that is responsible for the moss turning black. It can also be used to provide a rapid green up of turf ahead of a special event in a garden on the lawn.
This is so much better than traditional Lawn Sand. The sand in Lawn Sand is just the carrier of the products – Iron and Sulphate of Ammonia. You will get a rapid green up of the turf for around 6 weeks, with fantastic moss control properties too – so long as the moss is really wetted during aplication, thus water volume is so important.
The plan should be to apply Soluble Iron and then apply a granular lawn fertiliser a few weeks later. As the greeness of the Iron wears off, the fertiliser has already started to work and kicks in to promote a steady pattern of growth.
It has a very low cost per square metre and easy to apply as a foliar spray via a garden sprayer or knapsack. It dissolves in cold water easily without the need for constant agitation but a little tepid water will help it dissolve even quicker. If your lawn has a moss problem and you have the method available to apply a foliar iron and moss control product, then this is the one you need to use and it sells like hot cakes! Should you not gain adequate moss control first time around, mostly as a result of not applying sufficient water or product during the process, repeat the application one week later so long as we have had a period of rainfall between applications. This should sort it!
Comes in a very handy 2.5 Kg bucket and will store okay so long as it is kept sealed and in the dry.
Care should be taken not to let the spray solution come into contact with terrace or patio stones or brickwork otherwise it may leave an orange stain
